Organizing Time-Lapse Files

Here’s a video overview by contributor Rich Harrington about postproduction of time-lapse photos.

Photographers: It’s Time To Register For Summer School

Hi folks. Scott Bourne here with a message about a photo conference you can’t afford to miss. It’s Skip’s Summer School.

I’m proud to once again be on the teaching faculty at Skip’s Summer School for 2012. I’ve taught at each of these events and hands-down, they have been some of my favorite in the industry. Skip’s Summer School had turned into the most amazing boutique photo conference in the business and this year, Skip’s managed to make it better.

It’s one of the best programs and faculty ever assembled and there are some new components that people have asked for in survey after survey.

Before I talk about the up-coming program, here’s a three minute look back at last year that I think you’ll really enjoy…

Here’s what’s different this year…

*Everyone who signs up gets an immediate website review – we’ll help you figure out how to improve your chances of getting seen on the web.

*Now in Chicago with a more centralized location that’s easier for most people to get to than Vegas.

* It’s not just classroom stuff – Now each attendee gets a full day of hands-on with the two instructors of their choice.

* Enhanced platform programs and speakers.

*A couples workshop – more couples are working together in the photo industry than ever before and we have advice from three pro couples who have seen it all.

*Two catered lunches on Monday and Tuesday – this will maximize everybody’s time and we’ll be running two panel programs at lunch as well.

*Discounted $75 registration for WPPI next year.

*Enhanced network building experience unlike any other workshop or conference.

I can’t stress how important it is to get to know and learn from the other people in the photo business who have been there and done that. Here’s your chance. All the registration info is right here at

Because We Could All Use a Good Laugh

Two movies I thought worth sharing…  slightly off-topic, but funny nonetheless.


A little humor about the people we shoot (or those who get in the way of what we shoot):


A little humor about the dumb things we say:

RIP Steve Jobs – You Changed the World

If you would like to share your thoughts, memories, and condolences, please email

I just heard the news… and it hurts.  I find it strange that I am fighting tears over the loss of a man I’ve only met in passing.

But the truth is that I owe much of my professional career to this man’s vision.

The first computer I learned on was an Apple.  I had a Mac from day one in college.

I built my company around Macintosh technology.

I’ve used the portals Steve built to reach so many others.  From the books I write to the podcasts I publish, Apple technology helps me reach the world.

I think at all the people who have captured and shared their memories thanks to Steve and his concept of the Digital Hub.

His move to put iLife and iWork into the hands of so many has changed the way people communicate.

So while many will remember his technology genius…. I remember a man who believed that the world could be a better place.

One where everyone’s voice could be heard.

One where sharing video and photos was as easy as pushing a button.

One where the boundaries of cost wouldn’t prevent creatives from achieving their dream.

One where students could learn and be better connected.

One where people could use technology to create better experiences and interactions.

Thank you Steve for all that you’ve done.
